Pickin’ Wildflowers

We’re very excited about one of our newest gourd collections – Wildflowers. The new collection could be described as “rustic chic”. Each piece is natural in color with a beautiful flower to decorate the center.

The medium lit gourds are approximately 5 1/2″ in diameter and comes with a green electric light that shines through the vine cut out design.

The small is approximately 4″ in diameter and comes with a rawhide tie around the neck of the vase.

How beautiful would one of these gourds look as part of a rustic bookshelf display like this one?
